Planning using NLP Techniques
Hello. Last week I did a video talking about your personal exit strategy for Covid, and as I was doing it, I had this thought. “Some of you , including myself in this, may be having challenges planning during this uncertain time.” And the thought started me wondering where planning “sits” within NLP.
Here is a link to a video which explains how we get results and of course, planning sits everywhere within this Communication Model. It is of course a behaviour, but behaviours come from how we filter the information coming into our head.
Watch the video and then reflect on your planning and learn a new technique:
If we put aside Covid and any other challenges that maybe going on in your world, and plan for what we really want to happen, things have a way of coming true. It involves getting a great emotional state that is connected to planning. This creates us a reality which creates a behaviour that is about great planning.
of course, exercising, eating a healthy diet and keeping hydrated also help. As does having great support around you.
This technique, called Anchoring, involves thinking about a time when we planned really well and taking ourselves back to that time so that we can remember it as and when needed. My NLP courses teach you many more techniques.
My greatest planning times are when I meet up with a friend and colleague in a cafe or park and sit there with post its, pens and a large piece of paper. I get loads done and it feels really good. I can remember those times really easily and when I recall them, I fell clam and motivated and achieve the planning.
Here is the “script” to say to yourself to do the same.
“Can you remember a time, a specific time, when you were really feeling motivated by planning? As you remember that time, go back to that time, float down into your body, see what you saw, hear what you heard and really feel those feelings of being totally motivated about planning.”
And just remember those feelings by making a fist or doing a power pose or something similar.
I’m off to sit in my garden now to plan my next blogs, felling really motivated
Until next week:
Dr Bridget – planning just for you!
